Trulia’s semiannual foreclosure survey tracks U.S. homebuyer’s attitudes towards foreclosed homes. This ongoing survey conducted by Harris Interactive® on behalf of Trulia and RealtyTrac started in 2008.
Harris Interactive conducts this survey online within the United States via its QuickQuerysm online omnibus service over a three day period. The sample size exceeds 2,000 U.S. adults aged 18 or older, but varies slightly quarter to quarter. Survey respondents include homeowners with and without mortgages as well as renters. Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
